It remains one of the strangest sights on Twitter, right up there with the more celebrated fact that TBS talk show host Conan O’Brien continues to follow but a single person, Michigan’s Sarah Slowik. In the shadow of the new Thursday night CBS sitcom $#*! My Dad Says, show creator Justin Halpern at press time similarly returns his 1,784,340 follow favors with just one – actor LeVar Burton.
“I checked out LeVar’s feed and all it said was, ‘Saw District 9. Awesome.’ And that just made me laugh!” Halpern confessed recently to TV Guide. Really, that’s it? (Although to be fair, Halpern was not directly answering a question about why he follows Burton, only offering general Twitter tips.)
